Asuka captured the SmackDown Women's Title this past Sunday at the WWE TLC pay-per-view where Ronda Rousey came out during the Triple-Threat TLC match involving Asuka, Becky and Charlotte Flair and Ronda pushed Charlotte and Becky off a ladder which opened the door for Asuka to climb up and grab the title.
